PXIe-5164 External Calibration

    Last Modified: September 12, 2017

    Your device must be externally calibrated at least once every two years in order to maintain adherence to published specifications.

    For the PXIe-5164, external calibration yields the following benefits:

    • Corrects for DC gain and offset errors within the oscilloscope
    • Corrects for DC offset errors within the oscilloscope for the AC coupling paths
    • Minimizes errors in the accuracy of the internal Sample clock
    • Adjusts passband amplitude flatness and bandwidth

    Your application may have different calibration interval requirements based on its measurement accuracy demands. You can change the calibration due date with MAX or the Set Calibration Due Date node.
